Welcome to SIU Veterans Services Main Content

The Veterans Center is committed to making the transition of Veterans from the military to SIU Carbondale a seamless process. If you are a Veteran who is interested in attending SIU Carbondale, or have already been accepted, your first step should be to contact the Veterans Services Office. If any questions arise please do not hesitate to contact or stop by.

Veteran Services has moved:  We are still in Woody hall, but have moved to the first floor of C-Wing.  If you enter the building from the South (approaching from Faner) we are on the ground level to the left.

Please Note Veteran Services will be Closed, along with the rest of campus, Thursday December 24 - Monday January 4.
